Horizontally-moving method (HMM) stereoscopic camera has a liner relationship between ver-gence and focus control. We introduced the automatic control method for a stereoscopic camera system that uses the relationship between vergence and focus of an HMM stereoscopic camera. the Automatic control method uses disparity compensation of the acquired image pair from the stereoscopic camera. For faster extraction of disparity information, the proposed binocular dispar-ity estimation method by the one-dimensional cepstral filter algorithm would be investigated. The suggested system in this study substantially reduced the controlling time and error-ratio so as to make it possible to achieve natural and clear images.
